    One of our dedicated server is having only one site and required to take the backup with the follow scenario:

    > A daily backup for the last month. That is the backup of last 30 days. (30 tar.gz backup files)

    > And a backup for each month for the last 6 months. (6 tar.gz backup files )

    Is this possible via WHM backup configuration. If not anyone can shed some light how I can do this..

    Is it possible to edit the default backup script of cPanel?

    Please help me.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello :)

    This is possible with the improved backup system in cPanel version 11.38. The release notes for version 11.38 are available at:

    cPanel 11.38 - Improved Backup System

    You can enable daily and monthly backups, and then choose to retain a specific number of those backups. To note, cPanel version 11.38 is not yet available on the "Stable" build tier. You would have to switch to the "Release" build tier in your "Update Preferences" option within WHM for it to be available.

    Thank you.
